King Me 2: The Shining

The crypt extends deeper than you could have possibly imagined, and sounds of Carrie fade as you continue forward. The speech of a hundred different podcasts echo hollow off the walls, resonating in coffin and bone. It overwhelms you. The auditory assault drives you to panic, and you scrabble forward, desperately. Right as your head feels like it will crumple under the volume, the conversations cease. The empty darkness – once a source of terror – now comforts you. And then, you hear a voice – not outside, not from the black maw that just blasted you, but from within your own mind. It says, “would you like some ice cream, doc?”

This podcast uses the ending theme from Creepshow II, and De Natura No. 1, De Natura No. 2, The Awakening of Jacob, and It’s All Forgotten Now (Ray Noble & Al Bowlly) from The Shining.

King Me 1: Carrie

The crypt is dark and wet – it surrounds you. You scramble for a light, a match, anything. You hear a noise to your left – a laugh, off in the cavernous distance – and a blue glow illuminates the stone coffins around you. The light calls you towards it, and as you near, you can hear the sounds of two people, talking about a movie – a Stephen King movie. Gripped by a sudden horror, you realize where you are – this is the podcast crypt: an echoing hell from which you may never escape. With no other choice left to you, you sit, and listen.

This episode is about the movie Carrie (1976). It begins and ends with the End Theme from the film Creepshow. It also features the song “Theme From Carrie” by Pino Donaggio. Welcome to the crypt, listener.
